Hey there! Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop March Edition: Hoppity Hop Hop! If you are already on the hop you just arrived from Stella MacKay's blog, StellarStamps where you saw Stella's gorgeous Easter Bunny Basket Card! Love it!
My creation for you today is a little "suite" of two coordinating 3-D items that I absolutely love:
My suite consists of a Coastal Cabana Easter Basket and a sponge-daubered Mini Muslin treat bag with a double-gift tag!
The basket is super-easy to make with just a 4" x 5" piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock and one more 1/2" x 4" itty-bitty strip for the handle. I inked just the "hello" from the "hello baby" stamp in Teeny Tiny Wishes, then punched it out with one of the Little Labels Punch Pack labels. I tied a bit of Linen Thread in a bow, then glue-dotted it to the basket.
I used acrylic paint and Sponge Daubers to stamp the polka-dots on the Mini Muslin Bag for a spring-y, easter-y look! I had just a few colors of acrylic paint in my stash, and no pink, so I added a drop of Primrose Petals to white and stirred it with a toothpick before stamping on the bag. The yellow paint was also a little bit too dark, so I added a bit of white paint to it to tone it down.
I used the bunny from the "Baby, We've Grown" stamp set, stamped on a scrap of Watercolor Paper, watercolored with an Aquapainter and inkpad lid ink, and cut out with the smallest Oval Collection Framelit Die. I mounted it on a Scalloped Tag Topper Punched piece of Afternoon Tea Designer Paper.
I stamped a Very Vanilla Scalloped Tag Topper Tag with the string of hearts from the Make Note This and That Rotary Stamp and Coastal Cabana ink. The greeting is from Delightful Dozen. I added a strip of Coastal Cabana cut with the Fringe Scissors. The "eggs" hiding in the grass are actually punched with another of the Little Labels Punch Pack punches and then cut in half.
